lbcliff Posted June 22, 2004 Share Posted June 22, 2004 I have been getting 1800 or so SPAMs per day. When I found SpamCop on Sunday, I thought I'd found a ray of hope. It looked like a legitimate reporting service & I even signed up for a paid membership to support the cause. On Sunday, I reported about 30 abusers. I thought, perhaps if I was lucky, I'd see a slight reduction in the flood. This morning, instead of the usual 1800, I got over 3000. This is a bit too much of a coincidence. Now, I'm afraid to report any other offenders. It occurred to me that my e-mail address is in the header & that reporting to a disreputable administrator could actually make things worse. And no, I didn't just fall off the spam turnip truck. I have never responded to a spam, clicked on a link in one, asked to be taken off a list or opened an attachment. I do have a web site & understand that because my e-mail address is on it, I am vulnerable to spiders. About a month ago, the spam count shot from about 300 per day to 1800 per day & most of them are multiples of the same (6-12 copies sent at the same time). If you can offer any insight on this, it would be much appreciated. I have been trying to find a legitimate consultant that I can pay to help me stop this. I can't run my business.
